NFL Refuses to Enforce National Anthem Policy This Year, Guess What’s Happening Now?

Published

on

The NFL season kicked off on Sunday, and, as usual, it was filled with spoiled rotten professional athletes taking a knee during the National Anthem, again, despite the National Football League acting as if they were going to put a stop to this stuff this year.

Turns out that policy they made over the offseason was nothing more than talk, as they’ve stated they aren’t going to enforce the rule this season. This isn’t likely to surprise most fans who probably figured nothing would be done.

Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson were the first players of the 2018 regular season to take a knee during the playing of the national anthem before the game. Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn raised a fist into the air, while in San Francisco 49ers, wide receiver Marquise Goodwin did the same thing.

And the protests will continue, as the NFL is “not expected to implement a new policy on the national anthem this season,” league sources told ESPN.

The new policy is going to be no policy — at least for this season, according to sources.

Too many people have stances too strong to figure out a compromise, but an NFL official insisted Sunday morning that there is continuing dialogue on the topic as the league looks for ways to address social justice issues.

Players began sitting or kneeling during the anthem in 2016 to protest racial inequality, police brutality and other issues. The protests have become a divisive topic of debate, and the NFL and players’ union still haven’t said whether players will be punished this season if they choose to kneel or demonstrate during the anthem.

President Trump has taken a deep interest in this particular issue ever since he took office, and as such, wasted no time in addressing the start of the new season on Twitter.

“Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison. Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a decade. If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The question that seems to be on a lot of folks’ minds is what, exactly, do these players hope to accomplish by their actions. Is anyone’s mind and heart being changed? What is the reform they want to see, specifically? Does anyone really know what this is about?

Seems like it’s just a ploy for players to look hip and cool, to be “woke” and be part of the “in crowd.” It’s a movement that, as of now, lacks any real substance. It’s the politicization of football with no discernible goal in mind.

WHAT. THE. HECK?? This sounds like kind of a big deal… From Daily Wire: Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, who resigned from the company on Thursday amid his alleged ties to a government operation, made bombshell accusations on CNN late on Thursday night, claiming that top FBI officials reached out to him in 2015-2016 to conduct law enforcement activities that turned out to be political espionage. Byrne appeared to indicate that the request came from FBI agents after it was passed down from a top FBI official, who he later says he learned was anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok. Byrne said that the political espionage operation targeted four candidates: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.

VIDEO PROOF: Democrat Rep. Says We Need the Undocumented to Mow ‘Our Beautiful Lawns’

Will the MSM care? Nah.

Imagine if New Jersey Democrat Rep. Tom Malinowski – Who? – was a Republican. He would, unequivocally, beyond a shadow of a doubt, be forced to resign from office. No question about it. Here’s why… From Daily Wire: Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) explained to his constituents earlier in the week that illegal immigrants are necessary members of New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District because they are willing to take on the jobs that the community’s teenagers will no longer do. Malinowski noted, “We have to think about the jobs because the reason this happens is because there are a lot of jobs in our community that, like it or not, for better or worse, Americans are not willing to take.” He added, “I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal – most of them documented – but certainly some of them are not. Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County? We don’t usually ask but a lot of those workers are undocumented.” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to talk an awful lot like President Trump, back in the day. In fact, old (…or young?) Pelosi did not care for illegal aliens. She even went as far as saying “we certainly don’t” need more of them.

She took a major swipe at AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and another freshman liberal in a way that caught Twitter’s attention. See for yourself: Speaker Pelosi says ⁦⁦@AOC⁩, ⁦@IlhanMN⁩, ⁦@AyannaPressley⁩ and ⁦⁦@RashidaTlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they…
